Review:

'Arranging his material with far-reaching originality by key preoccupations in Hellenistic art - power, victory, benefaction, prowess, wisdom, piety, desire, luxury, difference and death - Stewart brilliantly contextualizes and analyzes its wealth. He offers a fascinating and reliable study for our times and beyond, wearing his magisterial learning lightly and wittily.' Graham Zanker, University of Canterbury, New Zealand

'Intelligent, erudite, even humorous, Andrew Stewart's stimulating book on Hellenistic art pays close attention to ancient sources and contexts and does much to illuminate the art of this multicultural period.' Mary Sturgeon, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

'Andrew Stewart deftly weaves together literature, history, politics and visual culture to create a vivid and arresting account of Hellenistic art that is at once erudite and accessible. A good book makes one see the subject anew, and this is exactly what Stewart achieves - a portrait of Hellenistic art for the twenty-first century.' Susan Rotroff, Washington University, St Louis

'Arguments are presented clearly, and the layout is handled deftly. It is a joy to read.' John Griffiths Pedley, Bryn Mawr Classical Review

Book Description:

This textbook offers a new thematic, contextualized, and richly illustrated approach to Hellenistic art for advanced undergraduate and pre-MA students in art history, classics, history, and humanities. Helpful ancillary features include maps, excerpts from Hellenistic literature, appendices, a glossary, a timeline, biographies of key figures, and suggestions for further reading.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. What was Hellenistic art, and what were its contexts, aims, achievements, and impact? This textbook introduces students to these questions and offers a series of answers to them. Its twelve chapters and two 'focus' sections examine Hellenistic sculpture, painting, luxury arts, and architecture. Thematically organized, spanning the three centuries from Alexander to Augustus, and ranging geographically from Italy to India and the Black Sea to Nubia, the book examines key monuments of Hellenistic art in relation to the great political, social, cultural, and intellectual issues of the time. It is illustrated with 170 photographs (mostly in color, and many never before published) and contextualized through excerpts from Hellenistic literature and inscriptions. Helpful ancillary features include maps, appendices with background on Hellenistic artists and translations of key documents, a full glossary, a timeline, brief biographies of key figures, suggestions for further reading, and bibliographical references.
